It’s a natural process we’re born with,but….it can die!Have you ever seen this kind of posterin primary school science rooms?The inquiry process hasn’t changed.
Students undertake scientific investigations across all science units. Scientific investigations may be undertaken in groups,but all work for assessment must be completed individually.Students maintain a logbook of practical activities for recording, authentication and assessment purposes.Students communicate findings for the investigation in a scientific poster. The poster may be produced electronically or inhard copy format and should not exceed 1000 words. The below template is to be used by students in the development ofthe scientific poster for the investigation undertaken.TitleQuestion under investigation is the titleIntroductionExplanation or reason for undertaking the investigation, including a clear aim, a hypothesis and/or prediction andrelevant background physics conceptsMethodologySummary that outlines the methodology used in the investigation and is authenticated by logbook entries.Identification and management of relevant risks, including the relevant health, safety and ethical guidelines followed inthe investigationResultsPresentation of collected data/evidence in appropriate format to illustrate trends, patterns and/or relationshipsDiscussionAnalysis and evaluation of primary data. Identification of outliers and their subsequent treatment. Identification oflimitations in data and methods, and suggested improvements. Linking of results to relevant physics conceptsConclusionConclusion that provides a response to the questionReferences andacknowledgmentsReferencing and acknowledgment of all quotations and sourced content as they appear in the posterAs you grow up life gets tougher, there are more demands placed onyou, but it’s SO important not to lose that childish curiosity andinquisitive nature you were born with – it’s what makes life fun!
